Germany take on Italy on Saturday 2nd July, 2016, with kickoff at 20:00. This match is currently being shown LIVE on BBC1.

If you had to bet on one of the four quarter finals to provide the eventual winner of Euro 2016, you’d almost certainly choose this game between World Champions Germany and Italy, the conquerors of Spain. While it may seem like the Germans have an advantage, their clear weakness is in the striking positions, and with that in mind it will be very hard for them to overcome the savvy Italians.

Unfortunately for Italy, they aren’t much better off in those areas, so this might just turn into a cagey, defensive match decided by a single moment of luck or brilliance.
